Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

It is supposed you to have bad weather on Canada

I am happy for you (and the pictures are beautiful). I think often in you guys that live the winter in the boat. This year has been very bad here (and on the Atlantic European coast). Huge 15m waves have been causing havoc in all coast destroying houses, restaurants and even railroads.

When nature is angry and huge waves hit the coast Portuguese sailors seat at the fireplace and this has been an incredibly bad year for Fishermen. Some foreigners don't take it too seriously and two days ago this 64ft aluminium Polish yacht was thrown to the coast, happily to a beach and happily they all got away alive (they were rescued previously). It was on the South coast that is not half has bad as the west coast.




Be careful out there, stay well and safe

Perfect, but not for sailing (This was from a winter walk with my daughters a couple of weekends ago):

With that stationary high not much in the way of storms.. good easterly on the Strait on the ferry home, though!

Not complaining, three days in Tofino with no rain - that's OK...

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Our friends got a good shot of Skipping Stone sailing in the lee of Martinique, 1-22-14 . A great day; one tack from Rodney Bay, St. Lucia to the anchorage in Fort de France, Martinique. One doesn't often get that!

.. and it's always a treat to get a good picture of your own boat under sail!
